Some of us don’t need any more reasons to fear clowns, but for those sunny few who were OK with them, Stephen King released a massive book called IT in 1986 that gave us the scariest clown imaginable. And now Mama director Andrés Muschietti has directed a new adaptation of the story, and if the trailer is anything to go by it’s going to be exactly the horror movie everyone wants. Bill Skarsgård looks perfect as Pennywise, and the Loser’s Club looks promising, too.

IT will come skulking out of the sewers and into a theater terrifyingly near you on September 8th! In the meantime, do yourself a favor and check out national treasure Grady Hendrix’s take on King’s classic.
